The above recipes are just one ineration of how to fix the finished product. . . .note I didn't include precise measurements.  I also enjoyed learning new spellings and pronounciations of words.  As you might know already, the list could go on as languages grow and expand regularly.

Kirjoittajan huomautus:  Kehotuksen ottaminen voi jatkua selvästi yli 10 päivän ajan. Nautin mielelläni eri tekniikoista aterioiden valmistamiseksi. Yllä olevat reseptit ovat vain yksi esimerkki lopputuotteen korjaamisesta. . . . Huomaa, etten sisällyttänyt tarkkoja mittauksia. Nautin myös uusien sanojen oikeinkirjoituksesta ja ääntämisestä. Kuten ehkä jo tiedät, luetteloa voidaan jatkaa, kun kielet kasvavat ja laajenevat säännöllisesti.
